Live blog: coronavirus measures on Texel

Smoke and fire ban in nature reserves

4 July 2019

Update July 16: from today the natural fire risk has been reduced to phase 1: "regular risk". As always: be careful with fire in nature.

Due to the persistent drought, heat and wind, a smoking and heating ban is valid on Texel from 4 July 2019 until further notice.

Avoid fire

To prevent a natural fire it is now not permitted to smoke or burn in the forest, the dunes and the heathland of Texel. The ban is in force within a distance of thirty meters from the nature reserves.

The Texel municipality's advice is: be extra careful with barbecues, fire pits, campfires and the like, do not smoke in nature areas, do not park your car in high dry grass and throw waste (especially glass) in the designated bins.
